This is a great small hotel. The room was very clean and had a warm welcoming feeling from the moment we stepped inside. Anne is most helpful and was there to answer all the questions we had. We have visited Orient Bay before but this was the first time we have stayed there. The beach, restaurants and the grocery store... More

We read a lot of reviews of Palm Court, and decided over-all it sounded like just what we were looking for. It was and is. The rooms are large and clean, if basic. The bed was on the hard side but more than comfortable. Television was more than expected after reading some reviews, as there were plenty of English language... More

Had a wonderful two days there at the Palm Court. Two blocks off the beach but a great location. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance so you do not miss not being on the beach. Beds need to be replaced; only a few of the TV channels worked; and the rooms needed some attention Also, it is somewhat inconvient... More

We generally visit St Martin annually now, always staying in Orient Bay. We used to stay in Cap Caribes, but felt it had declined (glad to see new ownership or management seems to be upgrading it again). Several years ago we tried Palm Court and have never looked back at any other property. The rooms are clean and bright. The... More

This was our 15th trip to St. Martin and we never tire of it's beauty and people. We have stayed on both the French and the Dutch sides with family and friends but when it is just my husband and myself we prefer the French side. We had a terrible yr. personally and this time we just wanted to relax.... More

The rooms are big, clean and beautifully decorated (cooking is not allowed in the room, just the use of the microwave). The pool area is very charming, and can be used any time of the day. The breakfast is served until 10h30 and it is average, not much to choose from. The hotel is just a 2 mim walk from... More

Orient bay is a nice beach with great sun and warm water. Palm court is nicely located close to restaurants and a very short walk to the beaches. Very nice people great service and a nice continental breakfast included. The price is great. Definitely ask for a second or third story room as first floor rooms are too close to... More

This is a small hotel featuring a continental breakfast and a free lounge chair at Waikiki Beach., This is significant in that it saves probably $30/ day per in what are additonal costs when we have stayed at other places in St. Martin. There is a small pool area and secure parking. Make sure you say hello to Puppy, the... More

Very private and quiet small hotel. It is a short walk from the beach. Large, nicely decorated rooms. Lush landscaping, nice pool. Generous continental breakfast is included. We have stayed here twice and plan to return.

This was our third stay at Palm Court. We find the location perfect and everything we need close at hand. We also think very highly of the staff - gracious and warm and always helpful. The room was just as we remembered, bright, spacious, with a Moroccan feel. There is a kitchenette with microwave, coffee maker and small fridge that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palm Court is situated in Orient Bay, just two minutes walk from the beach and all local amenities. Orient Beach is on the windward side of the island, so the hotel is blessed with the cooling Caribbean trade winds for most of the year. The breeze not only keeps the temperatures comfortable, but also provides ideal conditions for watersports such as windsurfing and kitesurfing. ... more   less
